Eagles Preview: Need To Win To Stay In AFC North Contention

The Eagles, have been a very disappointing team so far this season. Although Jalen Hurts has made a clear jump from last season, it still has not been enough to lead to any real team success.

The Eagles have struggled greatly on the ground and Hurts still struggles at times through the air. As a result of this, their offense can oftentimes be stagnant.

Lions Preview: Need To Get Back On The Right Track

Going by record alone, the Detroit Lions have been the worst team in the NFL this season. Despite this, they really have not looked as awful as their record shows. They have two single-digit losses so far this season against the Minnesota Vikings and Baltimore Ravens.

This is one of the few games that the Lions have left on their schedule that they can realistically win. As a result of this, this game becomes a must-win for Detroit or this 2021 team may be the second in franchise history to go winless.
